For the Kodak 127 twin-lens camera, see Kodak Brownie Starflex
Two different Japanese 6×6 TLR cameras were called Starflex. The wartime Starflex was advertised by Ueda Shashinki-ten from 1940 to 1943. The postwar Starflex is only known from a couple of surviving examples, it was probably made by Tougodo. These two cameras are probably unrelated, and very little information is available about them.
The postwar Starflex looks similar to other TLR cameras made by Tougodo, like the Toyocaflex. It has an unnamed shutter (B, 1–300), a Tri-Lausar Anastigmat 8cm f/3.5 taking lens and a Tri-Lausar Viewer 8cm f/3.5 viewing lens. The name STARFLEX is written on the nameplate in capital letters.
